Jennie’s Place: A Tiny Vernacular Memorial Home for Two Children Murdered in Honduras

Comments Off on Jennie’s Place: A Tiny Vernacular Memorial Home for Two Children Murdered in Honduras

On June 3, 2008, two children living in a small house overlooking a lush valley in Guaimaca, Honduras were murdered by four criminals. Jennie Lizeth Lopez (12) and her brother, Karlin Adali Valdez (10) were victims of a needless and brutal crime. Paul Lukez Architecture visited the original location where these horrendous events occurred and met with local community members on how to best memorialize the lives and spirit of Jennie and her brother Karlin. The hillside community of La Nava embraced the idea of building a structure on the footprint of the original house. Over 65 family members helped build the structure. In addition, PLA was able to raise $30,000 for materials and specialized labor. The new structure designed by PLA has three interior spaces; a multi-use community space, a chapel and a rest room. Simple means of construction mined from the local vernacular helps create a space of peace and meditation. Light and nature work their wonders, as the space becomes a place to collect and filter impressions, experiences and memory. + Paul Lukez Architecture The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Israeli Electric Car Company Better Place Files for Bankruptcy

The once-promising electric car company Better Place has filed for bankruptcy. The company sought to put in place a large and innovative electric vehicle network with interchangable batteries , which could be switched out and replaced in about the same amount of time it takes to fill up a tank of gas. But that concept never truly came to fruition, partly because it never attracted enough buyers to become a commercial success. On Sunday, the company announced plans to liquidate.

Comments Off on CES 2011: Does The Sustainable Planet Zone Need to Disappear?

Photos via Jaymi Heimbuch Every year I’m saddened by the small size of the Sustainable Planet Zone at CES. I always hope that the next year, it’ll be bigger as more companies creating greener innovations sign on to show off their wares. However, this year it seems to be even smaller than last year, with barely any booths at all

Comments Off on The Designer’s Place in Revealing Hidden Costs

 Ecosystem service groups are trying to save natural resources by reframing them as investments because fundamentally that’s what matters in our free market world. But is it artists, designers and storytellers who are best suited to conveying true impact?
